Thanks to Fabien Guez for inviting us to appear on his Check-up Santé show on BFM Business to talk about cardiovascular disease among women and Women’s Cardiovascular Healthcare Foundation (Agir pour le Cœur des Femmes).
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among women. Every year in France, more than 75,000 women die from a cardiovascular disease, with 200 deaths per day. Heart attacks are increasing +5% per year among women ages 45 to 54, linked to unhealthy lifestyles. Women have different warning signs than men and are diagnosed late, which significantly increases their risk of dying or not recovering to full health. They also don’t receive enough screening and monitoring during three key hormone stages: when they first start or change birth control methods, during pregnancy, and during menopause. Scientific research has focused very little on the female cardiovascular system and treatments don’t always take into account women’s specific metabolism. Yet with positive, compassionate prevention, 8 out of 10 women can avoid cardiovascular disease. Women’s Cardiovascular Healthcare Foundation’s Mission: Alert – Anticipate – Act.
